After a couple years, Eritrean Airlines comes back to FCO from Asmera with a new A320 and livery:

Revival of the Eritrean Airlines
Friday, 22 July 2011 02:47 | Written by Kesete Ghebrehiwet | PDF Print E-mail

Eritrean airline has already begun its operation anew from 16 July 2011. Shabait has conducted a brief interview with Mr. Shakil Afab Kashmirwala, Chief Executive Office of the Eritrean Airlines as regards the re-launching of the Airline and prospects of future development. Excerpts follow:

The Eritrean Airlines has incepted its flight operations in a restructured manner, what are the major changes?

The major changes we have made when compared with the previous Eritrean Airlines is that there is a major shift in the business policy on top of implementing different business modules together. In the past, the Eritrean Airlines used to bank on third and fourth freedom traffic means. But now, there would be a round air traffic as opposed to the previous operation. We want to promote Asmara as a regional hub, and thereby make Eritrea the gateway to Africa. If we look on Eritrea’s strategic location, the country has all the necessary ingredients to serve as a gateway to Africa.

We have also restructured the Airline that we have created new departments and divisions. We have revised the payment scales and we have also hired new staff and crew. The selection process was very tough that from the over 300 applicants, only 26 were selected and sent to Malaysia to be trained by Malaysian airline, which is one of the renowned airliners in the world. Besides, we have also introduced a new livery of Aircraft. Onboard services have thus been improved that a new configuration of the aircraft is now in place.

We will have business and economics classes that will have 50 and 34 inches seats respectively, which will make a very comfortable journey and help the airline, sustain the passengers. Moreover, we have gone for a much modern and recent aircraft–Airbus A320 to make the passengers feel comfortable flying with that. We have also opened our new world head quarter in Asmara. We are also switching a world class satellite communication which will make the communication system of the Eritrean Airlines very fast and efficient. Besides that, we have a major breakthrough that we are in the process of signing a contract with emirate airline that we are going to be switching to their revenue accounting system as well as their reservation system. Next two or three months we will see a major change in the Airline.

What benefits would the Eritrean passengers gain from this national Airline services?

We are going to have a direct service from Asmara to Lahore, Dubai, Cairo, Rome, Jeddah, and Khartoum. And definitely the Passengers are going to be benefited with the direct services and the flight price benefits for we have kept our operational cost low. They will also have more frequency of choices. We also intend to have an interline agreement with carriers like Emirates, Italia, Egypt air, and others. So, there will be better connectivity of Eritreans in Diaspora such as in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Americas and other places of destinations the airline is operating to. We will also have a local staff and that would be an added advantage to the Eritrean passengers in creating more comfort for onboard services.

What precautions have been taken as regards the safety, sustainability and competitiveness of this Airline?

Regarding the safety and sustainability of the Airline, we are starting off with a wet lease aircraft as we don’t have the complete facility at this point in time to maintain the Airbus A320. So, we have gone into an arrangement with another company who will do all the maintenance. They will ensure that there is an utmost dispatch liability. At the same time, we are also negotiating with the major manufacturers and suppliers for developing the line maintenance facility for self-maintenance for all major checks. This is what we intend to do in terms of the safety. In terms of sustainability, we are coming up with a totally new product.

Inline, with the competition, we will offer more frequencies with lower operational cost in which the passenger will have much more financial benefits to fly with Eritrean Airlines. Competition is always a good gauge to see where you stand. If you are not competitive in terms of pricing, services, dispatch reliability, and onboard services, which are all interwoven services, you are not competitive in all theses fronts and there is no way to survive. Besides the fair price, we will also offer for an extra luggage allowance, which we have already introduced. Our network will have uniform baggage policy. We will ensure that we are very competitive in terms of the pricing and in terms of overrates. On the cargo side, we will make sure that all the benefits of the baggage and refund policy pass on to the passengers.

Are there plans to start domestic flights, if so tell us about the flight routes that are to be introduced?

In line with the domestic flights, we have fleet of six Dornier aircrafts. We are actually trying to revive the fleet and make them air worthy. As soon as they are operational, we plan to introduce a domestic service probably a circle of flight that will take off from Asmara to Massawa and then to Assab. We will probably have a daily service because we are not mounting a very high capacity; so will offer passengers a choice between these three pints.

What experiences have been gained from its operations ?

A complete SWOT analysis of the last eight years was done. We looked at the strength, the weaknesses, the opportunities, and threats which would be faced in terms of the passengers, cargo, in terms of the operational capability and the route wise directional imbalances plus the operational limitations out of Asmara. All these were studied over the last one year. The new business plan is thus based on this analysis. What we are going towards is a very modern and efficient airline that should have self-sustainability. Of course, we will also generate a substantial amount of revenue for the country. We will be offering more employment to cope up with the extending network.

Could you also tell us about the future plans of this Airline?

The Eritrean airline plans to have its own modern fleet. Hence, we are looking at different option at this moment in time starting from the Airbus A320s to Airbus A330s. We are also evaluating the new 737s from the Boeing as well as we are looking at the wide body aircraft.

We will also build our own passenger terminal for there is a need to have a new passenger terminal to sustain the sixth freedom traffic and to make Eritrea a get way to Africa. Since the Government is exerting substantial support there would be very positive changes in the coming year. The Eritrean Airline also plans to build a new hanger for the maintenance facility which will most likely start with small capacity and then grow gradually. The target which we want to achieve is that we should become totally self-reliant on the maintenance aspect and thereby to carry out the complete Maintenance at the local basis.

As regards the extension of the existing network, we will start the flights to Lahore and Dubai four times a week, to Khartoum, Cairo and Rome twice a week, as well to Jeddah three times a week. Starting from October 2011, we will induct a second aircraft into our fleet. That aircraft will introduce services to Frankfurt, Nairobi, Johannesburg and we will mount more frequency on Jeddah and introduce a flight to Karachi that is besides Lagos. This is the new strategy, which we have adopted to ensure the sustainability in the Airline. Therefore, we are going with a very modern and fully efficient aircraft at a lowest operational cost at the same time expanding and addressing the needs of the passengers and the demand of the market.

If you have any last message you want to convey?

I am very much thankful for the Government, the Ministry of Transport and Communications and all authorities for their unprecedented support to the airline. We look forward to reactivating this airline and to serve the people and the government of Eritrea.

EMIRATES A380 TO SERVICE ROME FROM DEC. 1

Italy's historic capital city, which is currently served twice daily by Emirates would be carrier's 16th destination to be served by an A380


Dubai: Emirates said on Wednesday that it would launch daily A380 flights to Rome starting December 1 this year, which is also when the carrier would start serving Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the superjumbo, as announced on Tuesday.

Italy's historic capital city, which is currently served twice daily by Emirates would be carrier's 16th destination to be served by an A380.

"Coupled with a double daily service to Milan and a daily flight to Venice, the 35 weekly frequencies contribute to a $4.6 billion trade relationship between Italy and the UAE," Emirates said in a statement.

It added that from October 1, 2011, the A380 will begin serving Johannesburg, and then Munich from January 1, 2012.

IATA award for Rome-Fiumicino airport and for Alitalia

Rome, Italy - For improving baggage return service

(WAPA) - "IATA, International Air Transport Association, has awarded airport 'Leonardo da Vinci' and Alitalia with a certificate of recognition for the results obtained thanks to the progress of the program for baggage handling Bip - Baggage Improvement Program.

According to statistics compiled by IATA headquarters in Geneva, in the first quarter of 2011, the amount of mishandled luggage in the Roman airport declined by 44% over the same period of 2010.

This result was made ​​possible thanks to collaboration between Aeroporti di Roma and Alitalia, in its capacity as a handler reference hub.

Aeroporti di Roma has developed significant infrastructure investments in the development of baggage handling, including the facility Net 6000 for baggage handling in transit, entered in service last year and able to handle 6000 bags per hour. The new facility has enabled a considerable increase in efficiency and punctuality of baggage handling services.

Alitalia, which expresses 45% of passengers through the airport and which through its ground services serves many other airlines has developed functional technology investments to improve baggage handling and airport operations. These interventions have also helped to improve the punctuality of flights that, in the quarter under review, has exceeded 91%". Avionews

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
The terminal areas were upgraded during the 1990s:
* 1991: Opening of the domestic pier with 12 loading bridges (Pier A);
* 1995: Opening of the international pier with 10 loading bridges (Pier B);
* 1999: Opening of the west satellite with 11 loading bridges (satellite C) and sky-bridge train connecting it with the main terminal;
* 2000: Opening of the new domestic terminal (terminal A). Reorganization of terminal buildings, then consisting of: terminal A (and pier A), terminal AA, terminal B (and pier B), terminal C (and west satellite);
* 2004: Opening of new cargo terminal called Cargo City;
* 2008: Opening of terminal 5 for check-in of American carrier flights and El-Al (passengers are then bussed to the Main terminal building); serves 950,000 passengers per year. Extended work to build new pier C.
* 2009: Renaming of terminals - A has been renamed T1, AA has become T2, B and C became T3 and T5 has remained as T5.
* 2010: Launch of the new single Baggage Handling System (BHS) for more efficient luggage delivery.

The next commitments will be the following:

* completion of environment-friendly cogeneration system allowing the airport to self-produce energy;
* the new pier C (dedicated to international flights) with 16 additional loading bridges, to be completed by 2011-2012 to enable handling the expected growth from present-day 38 million passengers per year to 55 million by 2018.
* Masterplan Fiumicino Nord: to 2044, AdR, will build four new terminals and two new runways. In 2044 Fiumicino's passengers will be 100 million/year.
The Flumincino Nord masterplan looks very ambitious. 100 million passengers per annum by 2024? Not even London's Heathrow, Paris's CDG, or Frankfurt's airports will surpass this number.
